Bote, the maker of paddleboard, kayak and water lifestyle equipment, introduced its Zeppelin Aero 10’ inflatable kayak with a wide range of features to customize the vessel for any type of water or activity. 

Bote said it has “removed many of the common barriers to entry for customers who want to get into kayaking—the ability to transport the vessel, high prices and the lack of user-friendly options that have kept many people from the sport—until now.” 

The Zeppelin Aero 10’ follows on the heels of its predecessor, the Zeppelin Aero 12’6”, a tandem-style inflatable kayak, which underwent a style update for 2022 and now includes two tandem seats as a standard option. 

Both Zeppelin Aeros are constructed with military-grade PVC, a self-draining hull and three chambers for stability and buoyancy. The crafts feature a Magnepod to secure drinks using neo-magnet technology, Rac Receivers for use with the vessels Bucket Rac to store rods, Kula cooler bungees to keep gear secure, and a BVA deck pad foam for comfort.

“It’s no exaggeration to say that the entire Bote team is stoked to bring this little dream of a kayak to market,” said Willie Vernon, VP, marketing, Bote. “The Zeppelin Aero 10’ is quick and agile to paddle, feels completely secure on the water, has just the right amount of features, packs down into a backpack, and costs just over $1,000. It ticks all the boxes. We’re confident that the Zeppelin Aero 10’ is going to change the kayak game for good.”

The Zeppelin Aero 10’ is available at Bote flagship retail locations in Destin, Ft. Walton, Grayton Beach, and St. Petersburg, FL, or here.
